One of the longest running shows on Nickelodeon has been Spongebob Squarepants, and the show is set to have a film called The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run coming out this May. Just in, we have a new Super Bowl spot for the film, and it reveals one more celebrity cameo—Snoop Dogg!
Besides Snoop Dogg, we know that Keanu Reeves will be making a cameo in the film, besides that, we should probably just wait and see who else could have been cast. What's fun is, the Spongebob franchise has a history of celebrity cameos. The very first movie surprised everyone with an appearance from David Hasselhoff, and the film also had characters voiced by Scarlett Johansson and Alec Baldwin. The second movie, Sponge Out of Water also had Antonio Banderas playing the part of Burger-Beard.
Even the television episodes had fun guest stars like Johnny Depp, Johnny Knoxville, Steve Buscemi, Betty White, Mark Hamill, and Adam West.
While the first two films had featured the traditional 2D animated style of the show, it looks like Sponge on the Run is going to have the updated 3D animation. We don't know the reason as to why, but I imagine it was always easier that way; then again, I have no idea when it comes to animation.
This Memorial Day weekend, SpongeBob SquarePants, his best friend Patrick Star and the rest of the gang from Bikini Bottom hit the big screen in the first-ever all CGI SpongeBob motion picture event. After SpongeBob's beloved pet snail Gary is snail-napped, he and Patrick embark on an epic adventure to The Lost City of Atlantic City to bring Gary home. As they navigate the delights and dangers on this perilous and hilarious rescue mission, SpongeBob and his pals prove there's nothing stronger than the power of friendship.
